Purpose of Solicitation:
The purpose of this solicitation is to fund Market Facilitation projects that realize significant, long-term energy efficiency gains in the building sector by ensuring an adequately trained workforce exists for the proper installation and maintenance of advanced energy efficiency technologies and strategies.
Numerous policies have identified the need for significant energy efficiency improvements to new and existing buildings to achieve the state’s energy goals. As the housing and broader construction markets continue to improve, significant energy savings could be missed if new and existing buildings are not built, updated, or retrofitted with the best available technologies, techniques, and practices. Much of the skilled labor workforce may not be not trained in the proper installation, operation, and maintenance of these energy efficiency advancements. This could lead to unrealized energy savings and expense due to improper installation and maintenance; or building developers and others responsible for the design, development, and management of buildings may decide to forgo these energy efficiency advancements because savings and benefits are unrealized. Projects must fall within the following groups:
- Group 1: On-the-job training for constructing high performance attics and walls for new homes constructed in a manner consistent with proposals for the 2016 building energy efficiency standards.
- Group 2: Workforce training for installing advanced energy efficiency measures in existing buildings (residential/commercial/multifamily) in disadvantaged communities as defined by Senate Bill (SB) 535.
